RIT launches Happiness Diploma
Corporate Happiness Professional Diploma will train professionals to enable happiness programs
Rochester Institute of Technology, Dubai campus, has launched the first Corporate Happiness Professional Diploma for the region, to help develop corporate frameworks to promote happiness among employees and customers.
RIT Dubai is offering the programme in collaboration with Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), the regulatory body for Dubai Silicon Oasis, and Smart Dubai Office.
The first batch of students comprises 25 senior professionals from a wide spectrum of government departments and corporate specialisations. In a bid to drive the programme's success, SDO and DSOA are sponsoring 20 ‘Happiness Champions' from various sectors.
DSOA, SDO, and RIT Dubai have designed the curriculum to reflect the goals of the Happiness Agenda outlined by Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The course educates students on the key concepts of happiness and equips them to utilise their learning in the workplace to implement methods and frameworks that support the corporate environment in boosting the levels of happiness among employees and customers.
Participants will learn more about Dubai's Happiness Agenda, find out how to measure happiness levels within their own organisations, and study how to embed happiness within their corporate culture. In addition, they will gain a deeper understanding of the science of happiness as well as the notion of happiness in different cultures.
